Hey there, I’m
I'm passionate about building innovative products on the web keeping good design in mind. I like learning new technologies, and contributing to open source.Say Hi!
Hey! I’m Akash, a creative 23-year-old who loves building products with code.
Since then, I have been working on improving my skills in Web development. I decided to dip my feet in web development because I wanted to build products that were easily accessible to anyone on any device. It always motivates me when I hear how my project has helped someone solve their problem.
I completed my undergrad in Computer Science and Engineering from PES University. Most of the things I build or learn is still driven by curiosity even today. My most recent obsession has been building compilers, parsers and I’m always open to talk about front-end development, user interface design and open source!

I constantly learn new and exciting concepts in computer science and web development. I try applying these concepts to solve real-world problems. Few technologies I enjoy working with:
- HTML, CSS
- React, Next.js
A peer-to-peer file-sharing web app I built to solve a problem I faced while transferring files from my phone to my laptop without having to upload files to a cloud account or download specific file-sharing apps.
Blaze became the #1 Product of the day on Product Hunt and gets about 900 weekly views. DigitalOcean is sponsoring the infrastructure for this project. Technologies I learned while building Blaze:
An image to color palette generator I built to learn the Rust programming language and WebAssembly. The project also introduced me to various clustering algorithms and I further expanded it to a full-fledged product that anyone can use to create visually appealing color palettes.
- Web Assembly
- CLI development
A productivity tool I built to manage a lot of tabs open on our browser. UnTab provides a beautiful search interface to search tabs, bookmarks, history and also perform quick actions with just a few keystrokes.
I built UnTab in the FOSS Hack 2020 and it was one of the winning projects. UnTab is available as an extension for both Chrome and Firefox. UnTab has a powerful themes and plugins API that makes it possible for anyone to extend UnTab’s feature set.
- Browser Extension
- Framer Motion
- Tailwind CSS
I give talks to share my experience and learnings with the community and network with like-minded peers. This quote keeps me going — “The best way to learn is to teach”.
Calm down your overreactive forms with uncontrolled components
I document my learnings from building projects on my blog with the hope that it will help fellow curious developers like me. Though it takes time to write these blogs, I always come out with more understanding of the topic than I originally started with.
